Peachtree City wants water, sewage authority revamped

Peachtree City wants to drain its Water & Sewerage Authority of its current structure.

The City Council voted 5-0 on Aug. 17 to support a resolution to oust the committee’s current five-member board. The move was made following conflicts over whether WASA would be allowed to expand sewer service beyond the city’s borders.

Current WASA chairman Bill Holland spoke against the measure, asking that the city work with the existing board to come to terms. However, the city is moving forward with plans to ask the state legislature to authorize replacing the current WASA board with City Council members.
